The benefit of exhibiting

In the September 2018 issue of The Artist Anthony Yates says ‘Exhibiting is an essential part of my work’. Hear, hear.

Frustrated at the loss of so many exhibition venues in my area, I’ve recently had a first solo exhibition of small pictures in my local library. Although only two sold it was gratifying that many people expressed appreciation of the work shown. Also, to see your work in another environment with different lighting is beneficial as it helps you to assess what’s been achieved.

About The Artist

Welcome to the October issue in which many of our top-class artists celebrate painting in a variety of locations in all kinds of weather, from Pete the Street Brown in Havana, to Geoff Hunt who shows how not to let an unpromising day spoil your painting. Our artist-tutors also offer help and advice on colour mixing in oils, how to improve your compositional awareness, use gouache to paint atmospheric landscapes, create luminosity in your paintings by combining cold wax and water-soluble oils, and develop your skills by working in monochrome. Paul Talbot-Greaves suggests a simple exercise to help you loosen up, Julie Collins shows how to mix the right greens for your watercolour paintings, while Glyn Macey invites you to learn from the painting style of Lamorna Birch by following this month's demonstration. Plus, be inspired as we introduce many of this year's The Artist Open Competition amazingly talented prizewinners!
